The organization of a story is dependent upon its structure. That is, of course, obvious, yet it can be overlooked so easily in the process of writing or reading. But the conflict formation or the character development is essential to the story. This handbook is about that unpinning, the structure that carries a story.
In addition to the examination of classic plot and character development, I have included worksheets after each framework for use in designing a story as well as for examining a story for its organization. My intention was to create a resource book for reviewing and examining the structure of a narrative for design and understanding. My hope is that writers and readers will find it a practical addition to their resource libraries.
